Abstract
We propose the development of a detailed Cylindrical Transducers User Toolkit for the design of underwater acoustic transducers and sonar systems employing cylindrical transducers and relaxor piezoelectric single crystals. The User Toolkit will providing the systems designers with a simple way to project the acoustic performance for the class of cylindrical transducers and explore the design space afforded by new transducer and materials opportunities.
